I recently had the pleasure of participating in a unique event hosted by the Hubert H. Humphrey School of Public Affairs at the University of Minnesota. I was honored to join national and local lawmakers, regulators, academics and industry leaders from the telecommunications, wireless and cable industries to discuss how modernizing telecommunication policy can promote economic growth and create jobs.
University of Minnesota President Bob Bruininks, who is leaving the post to take a faculty position at the Humphrey Institute this summer, will be honored Tuesday night as part of the university’s Alumni Association’s annual celebration.
May 18, 7:30 p.m. | Ted Mann Concert Hall
Dean J. Brian Atwood will take part in the “Great Conversations” series on Tuesday, May 18, at 7:30 pm at the Ted Mann Concert Hall. Atwood will be joined by Peruvian economist Hernando de Soto, who is internationally known for his work on the informal economy and the importance of property rights. Praised by President Clinton as “the world’s greatest living economist” and named one of the 100 most influential people in the world by Forbes magazine, de Soto is the President of Peru’s Institute for Liberty and Democracy located in Lima.
Tickets for this event are $28.50 (or $23.50 for University of Minnesota faculty, staff, and students, as well as the University of Minnesota Alumni Association, Presidents Club, MinnPost.com, and Minnesota Public Radio members). You may order tickets by calling 612-624-2345.
